After high school and a brief stint at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design I spent years developing my process for making my finished paintings. My process is my passion and I gave up a nursing career to follow that passion full time. I paint exclusively from my own photographs and am as excited about getting into the field to get the desired images as I am about the studio work. My greatest reward is when an image I’ve created resonates with someone who sees what I saw when I shot the photo. This leads me to believe that almost anything in the world could be a potential painting.
